Wordless Wednesday: Daddy's Birthday

Wordless Wednesday is a daily prompt at Geneabloggers that asks family historians to create a post in which the main focus is a photograph or image.

Fred Slade about 1945

August 7, 1928 – January 31, 2009

Today would have been my dad’s 85th birthday.

  1. Aah, we always remember birthdays and anniversaries no matter how much time has passed. A very handsome man.

  2. Great photo & great way to honor your Dad.

  3. Those "special" days are always hard. Lovely photo - I think you look like him!

  4. Great picture. Those last days are so hard to remember. In one way, it seems like just yesterday when our family members were still with us. It doesn't seem possible that so many days have passed since then.

    What a great way to remember your dad, Wendy, and to share with us a person who obviously meant a great deal to you.

  5. A good way to remember him Wendy and with such a charming smile in his photo too.

  6. Senior photo?
    Great shot! Good memories :)
